Starting Lineup Daynce Mix



You all were a chatty bunch last night.  It's a pretty exciting thing to be able to get a win over Tim "The Enchanter" Lincecum, and just as exciting to score seven runs off of the Giants bullpen, one of the best in the bigs.  In honor of hero of the game Laynce Nix, I decided to make a little Daynce Mix and say what songs remind me of which Reds.  Feel free to add your own in the comments, or, more likely, talk about whatever the hell else.

Willy Taveras - "I Suck" by Mark Ronson, feat. Rivers Cuomo
Pretty self-explanatory.

Alex Gonzalez - "There's Only One Ricky Hatton" by drunk English boxing fans
To commemorate Dusty Baker's belief that there's only one Alex Gonzalez, even though he's coached two of them.

Joey Votto - "Nobody Does It Better" by Radiohead
Baby, you're the best.  But slightly more rocking than Carly Simon.  I also thought about "Simply Irresistible," for the Irresistable Force, or just a badass rendition of "O Canada."

Brandon Phillips - "I Think They Like Me" by Dem Franchize Boyz
The Franchise, trying to keep it real and still be the face of the team in Cincinnati. 

Scott Rolen - "Ridin' Dirty" by Chamillionaire
We see Rolen, we hatin'.  But dude's ballin' in the hot corner.

Wladimir Balentien - "We Have All the Time in the World" by My Bloody Valentine
Because even though this season may be lost, My Wladdy Balentien reminds us that this season is not the be all, end all.

Jonny Gomes - "Irish Drinking Song" by Less Than Jake
I don't know about you, but when I hear "Then we'll drink and drink and drink and drink and drink and drink and fight!," I think Jonny Gomes.  The other choice was "Put On Your White Sombrero."

Ryan Hanigan - "It's Nice to Know You Work Alone" by Silversun Pickups
One of the best hitters on the Reds, in acknowledgement of the fact that despite his high OBP, he's always stuck in the 8th spot with no protection from the pitcher.

Laynce Nix - "Knowledge" by Sometimes Y
I've never heard this song before, but it fits strictly for the band name.  Apparently they came from Milwaukee too!

Anybody got some other suggestions?
